Hattersley Group Practice offers primary care services to registered patients living within the catchment area as well as non-registered patients visiting, living in, or working in the area.

Making an appointment

If you would like to see the doctor or nurse please phone 0161 368 4161 or 0161 672 4527 or come into the centre to make an appointment.


In order to register with the centre you should bring your NHS medical card and also evidence of your place of residence, such as a work permit visa, utility bill or photo ID. If you do not have a medical card a receptionist will ask you to fill in a form and will offer you a registration medical appointment


If you are unable to keep your appointment it is very important that you let us know so that we can offer the appointment to someone else. Our centre's policy is to inform any patient who arrives more than 15 minutes late for an appointment that unfortunately they may not be seen and will have to re-book their appointment.


What if the centre is closed?


If you require urgent but not life-threatening medical assistance that cannot wait until your GP practice re-opens, please call 111. Following a telephone assessment by NHS111 you will be provided with information about the appropriate service for your health problem. If you are unsure which health care service you need to visit, NHS 111 will signpost you to the most appropriate care for your condition - GP, local pharmacy, walk-in-centre, emergency department or an emergency ambulance response.


If you have a life-threatening medical emergency, please dial 999.


Calls to the NHS 111 service are free from both landlines and mobiles (pay as you go phones need to have at least 1p of credit, although no charge is made).


Home visits


If you are registered at the practice and are unable to attend the health centre and need a home visit, please contact reception on 0161 368 4161 or 0161 672 4527. Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability. If possible, please try to telephone before 10am. A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or indeed arrange going to hospital. Please note we are always able to examine patients better and can do more tests in the centre. Please try to make it to the centre if you can.


Services

This practice has the following services:

Prescriptions

To order repeat prescriptions, please email repeats.hattersley@nhs.net

Immunisation Clinics

We immunise against infectious diseases. We strongly recommend that all children should receive their full course of immunisation.

For travel immunisations, please make enquiries in regard to those required for travel abroad two months in advance of departure if possible.

Antenatal Clinics

Antenatal clinics are held in surgery every Wednesday between 9.15am - 11.15am for 1st appointments and 1.15pm - 4.00pm for follow-up appointments; this is led by our midwife, who is based in the clinic. You need to book your first-time appointment for Antenatal with the receptionists.

Cervical Smear Tests

Smear tests for women involve an examination of the cervix (neck of the womb) to check for changes which occur before cancer develops. These changes can be treated and cancer prevented. We recommend that all women between the age of 25 and 64 years of age should have regular smears, unless advised otherwise by a doctor. Smear tests are usually performed by the practice nurse and the recommended interval between smears is three years - as advised by the Department of Health - unless there is a medical reason for more frequent tests. Patients wishing to check their results, and it is always wise to do this, should wait four to five weeks before doing so - the approximate time taken by the laboratory to process the tests.

Anti-coagulation Clinic

If you are taking Anticoagulants (most commonly Warfarin, sometimes Sinthrome) for a short period of time or as a lifelong treatment, you should be attending an Anticoagulation clinic. This group of drugs makes blood to take longer to clot and can make you prone to bleed for which is necessary to monitor your blood closely.

In this clinic, which is led by Anne Marie, Practice Nurse/Karen Platt & Healthcare Assistants and supervised by Dr L Chowdhury, GP, we take a blood sample from your finger and perform a test that measures how long your blood takes to clot and adjust your medication dose in order to keep your therapy safe and under control. It is extremely important that patients on this treatment attend regularly to reduce the risk of complications.

If you have been prescribed Warfarin or Sinthrome by the hospital or previously prescribed from another healthcare provider, please contact the surgery to make an appointment to attend our anti-coagulation clinic.

By attending the surgery you can save lots of time avoiding long transport journeys and waiting at the hospital.
